Sleeplessness is a common ailment and can be detrimental to our health and overall wellbeing. This may include the inability to fall or stay asleep, waking up multiple times during the night, or waking up early in the morning. There are a variety of testing available that could assist with this assessment of this issue including neurotransmitter testing, hormonal analysis as well as determining if there is a medical cause for this complaint through bloodwork. A determination of lifestyle factors that could contribute to insomnia also would be reviewed as well as the mental health component.
Hormones are chemical messengers that carry signals from one part of the body to another, and they work to control almost all primary physiological processes in the body, such as reproduction, sexual function, digestion, metabolism, growth, and energy and heat regulation. When hormones become deficient or imbalanced, many things can occur in the body, such as mood changes, night sweats, hot flashes, low libido, infertility, reduced sexual function, hair loss, wrinkling skin, and weight gain.
